Protecting structures is more important than ever as severe weather disasters are occurring more frequently. In 2021 alone, a study found that extreme weather impacted more than 14.5 million US homes – approximately 1 in 10 homes – causing nearly $57 billion in damage. American Structurepoint’s forensic engineers and investigative team help businesses and property owners to proactively manage and maintain their facilities and respond quickly in the aftermath of damages.
Just like you would for your body, people should get a “checkup” of their home or business. Hiring a professional engineer or architect to conduct a periodic structure “checkup” gives property owners the information they need to plan and budget for maintenance repairs such as roofs, windows, and doors. These checkups, otherwise known as property condition assessments, are also strongly recommended before purchasing a commercial property so business owners are educated about the property’s current condition and can plan adequately for the future.
